Build Your Own Windows Media Center 2005

Recently my wife got a new Creative Zen Vision. No matter what she tried, it would not sync video. The computer we were using has had a lot of video software and codecs installed over time, plus we were already using it to sync a Creative Portable Media Center and a SmartPhone.

Upgrading Your Skill Set to Visual Studio 2005

Now that Visual Studio 2005 has been released for a month, more books are starting to hit the shelves, training classes are popping up, and a lot of articles are (still) being written. Below is a roadmap I have laid out to bring experienced Visual Basic .NET programmers up to date. Visual Basic 6er's will probably be okay too.
